Welcome to Capac Elementary School
To educate and nurture every child.
All children can learn.
Every child's learning is dependent on having his/her physical, emotional, social, and academic needs met.
It is our responsibility to provide an environment conducive to learning so that a strong educational foundation is established for every child.
